Green-gold color. Ripe pear and apple aromas are brightened by citrus zest and dusty minerals. Dried orchard fruit flavors are gently lifted by chalky minerals. This finishes with very good persistence, but today I prefer the vivacity of its little brother, Las Brisas.
The 2009 Naia is 100% Verdejo with 12% of the wine fermented and aged sur lie in French oak, 88% in stainless steel. Light gold-colored, it gives up an impressive perfume of baking spices, floral notes, and pit fruits. On the palate it has surprising richness (from the lees aging and the exceptional vintage conditions), terrific concentration, and a lengthy finish. It should drink well for another 3 years.
Perhaps the finest blend of Verdejo (85%) and Viura (15%) I have ever tasted, this light-bodied, dry white is loaded with fruit. It offers an intense bouquet of orange marmalade, honeyed grapefruit, and other citrus in a full-driven, refreshing style with good underlying acidity. A great value, it will require consumption over the next 6ndash;9 months.
A creamy texture carries orange, guava, almond and light vanilla flavors in this polished white, which has lively acidity and wears its weight with grace. Verdejo. Drink now through 2010.
This yummy Spanish white from the Rueda region is a blend of Verdejo and Viura. Crisp and light as a Sauvignon Blanc, but with less acidity and more mouthwatering pear, apple and ginger spice flavors.
(85% verdejo and 15% viura) Pale, green-tinged color. Musky, minty aromas of white grapefruit, fresh apple and spices. Sweet, spicy, fresh and rich, with vibrant citrus, apple and spice flavors. A very brisk wine with serious intensity and a firm, lingering, aromatic finish. An indigenous Spanish white blend with the vibrancy of a Loire Valley sauvignon. Makes a terrific shellfish wine.
Deep, powerful nose features smoky pear, peach and licorice scents. Chewy and thick, with an exotic Indian spice tone to the powerful orchard fruit flavors, along with a strong nose of licorice. Finishes thick, oily and long. Pretty wild stuff.
